Double Decker! Anime's Videos Highlight Main Characters

Fall anime also reveals story, casts Rikiya Koyama, Aya Endo, Takuma Nagatsuka

The official website for Double Decker! Doug & Kirill, an anime series that is "one part" of the "new Tiger & Bunny animation project," began streaming two new promotional videos for the anime on Friday. The videos highlight the anime's main characters.

The site also revealed new cast members earlier this month, including: (Note: Character name romanizations for Sophie and Apple are not confirmed.)

Rikiya Koyama as Travis Murphy

Aya Endo as Sophie

Takuma Nagatsuka as Apple

The site has also revealed a story synopsis:

The city-state Risvaletta. In the shadow of this city with two suns where people go about their tranquil everyday lives, crimes and illegal drugs run rampant. Above all, a dangerous, highly-fatal drug named "Anthem" is casting a dark shadow on the streets. The "Seven-O" special criminal investigation unit, whose speciality is to supervise the investigation of Anthem, institutes a "Double Decker System" policy of forming groups of two investigators.
Doug Billingham is a veteran investigator. And now arriving at his side is Kirill Vrubel, whose true ability as an investigator is unknown. An aloof veteran detective who is hard to get a read on, and a rookie detective who is too eager and often takes actions in vain. The story of this unconventional detective duo starts now.

The anime will premiere in Japan this fall. Crunchyroll will stream the anime, and will host a premiere screening of the anime's first two episodes at its Crunchyroll Expo event, which takes place on September 1 to 3.

The anime will star:

Satoshi Mikami as Douglas "Doug" Billingham

Kōhei Amasaki as Kirill Vrubel

Saori Hayami as Deana del Rio

Chika Anzai as Katherine "K" Rochefort

Yō Taichi as Maxine "Max" Silverstone

Ryo Ando (Interviews with Monster Girls) is in charge of series production, and Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny, One-Punch Man, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.) is returning to oversee the series scripts.
